AWP-300 Wave Height Gauge (with Digital Output)

The AWP-300 capacitance Wave Height Gauge from Akamina Technologies combines the accuracy and reliability of the AWP-24 gauge with a CAN Bus digital interface. This makes the AWP-300 ideally suited for wave height measurements and integration with active wave absorption systems.

The digital CAN Bus interface eliminates many issues common in analogue data acquisition systems, such as noise and grounding issues over long cables. The CAN Bus interface also simplifies cabling as up to 30 AWP-300s can be connected in a daisy-chain fashion to the same cable.

The AWP-300-3 combines temperature stable electronics and a high quality Wave Probe Head. This results in extremely small calibration slope changes over temperature, making frequent calibrations redundant.

The AWP-300-3 Wave Height Gauge, with a CAN Bus digital interfaceis now available. This Wave Height Gauge is ideally suited for wave height measurements and integration with active wave absorption systems. It provides the same reliable, highly linear and accurate measurements of wave heights and water levels as the AWP-24 Series. For more information please visit AWP-300-3 Wave Height Gauge.



Akamina completes the design and the successful installation of 56-segment wave generator control system upgrade. The upgrade included custom control hardware and software as well as data acquisition hardware and software. This work was done for EDF - Laboratoire National d'Hydraulique et Environnement (EDF-LNHE) in Chatou, France.
